#3974 closed Bug (Works For Me)

Key Stuck when using HotKeySet + Send

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Jon
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


Problem Description:
When I set Hotkeys to CTRL+ALT+t to a function, that sends("text"), the CTRL and ALT key get stucked.

I tried to send all various combinations to unlock the stuck keys, eg.: {LALT}{ALTUP}{LCTRL}{CTRLDOWN}{CTRLUP}.....

The only thing that fixes the stuck key is to physically press CTRL then ALT on my keyboard.

Code Example:

$pwd = "PASSWORD"

While 1



Func passwordsend()

$temp = ClipGet()

Ok, the _SendEx is worling.

I was only testing this...
ControlSend("", "", "", "text", 0)

  • Resolution No Bug deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

In fact the pb come from the function executed before the release of the hotkey
If you add a Sleep(250) before the send that's work too
I will ask Jon if such go around can be integrated before startin a hotkey function

I recheck with the following script and Ii is working
So I close it with "works for me"
so if you encounter a pb please open a new tcket with a repro script

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Exit")

HotKeySet("^!t", "passwordsend")
Global $g_sPwd = "PASSWORD (" & @AutoItVersion & ")" & @CR

Global $g_hNotepad = WinWaitActive("[CLASS:Notepad]", "")

While 1

Func passwordsend()
;~ 	Local $temp = ClipGet()
;~ 	Sleep(150)
;~ 	ClipPut($temp)
EndFunc   ;==>passwordsend

Func _Exit()


EndFunc   ;==>_Exit
